“Oh, Mom!” the teenage me would say and roll her eyes. And, Mom would say to me, “I will get my revenge one day when you have teenage daughters.”
And, now my daughters are fully grown, one launched in the publishing biz (children’s and young adult fiction) and one about to start law school, and I have to say if this is revenge, my does it taste sweet!
I don’t think I ever properly appreciated my mom until I became a mother myself. The reason I could roll my eyes all those years ago (and still do today) is because the relationship we have with our mothers is among the most nurturing of all human connections. It is safe to be the most obnoxious version of ourselves because when we are at our best, our moms ooze pride from every pore.
Mom, I love you to the moon and back!
